Buildbot: Use tar.xz instead of tar.gz for sources

Authored by Jens (JRottm) on Oct 29 2019, 1:41 PM.



The "make tgz" target is renamed to "make sourcepkg", so the command doesn't have to change again if the compression method does. "make tgz" was a bad, ambiguous name anyway, because it doesn't make clear that the sources are packed, not binaries.

Renamed →, because all other files in this directory are called make_something.

2.80 release sources: 52 → 36 MB (-31%)

Also fine with this change.

Thanks, committed rB60d0446db34a4250c6cd2881f5dd71a08f7a8867

Note, renamed sourcepkg to source_archive since this isn't a package format, just an archived version of the source.
